Ah! Okay, that helps! Sorry for being dense.
BUT, now I download the epel-389-ds-base.repo into the yum.repos.d and I get:
[root@localhost SRPMS]# cat /etc/redhat-release
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.8 (Tikanga)
[root@localhost SRPMS]# yum install 389-ds
Loaded plugins: katello, product-id, rhnplugin, security, subscription-manager
Updating certificate-based repositories.
Unable to read consumer identity
epel-389-ds-base/primary | 4.7 kB 00:00
[Errno -3] Error performing checksum
Trying other mirror.
Error: failure: repodata/primary.xml.gz from epel-389-ds-base: [Errno 256] No more mirrors
And yes, I have tried the various cache invalidation techniques to no avail. Searching
for solutions yields little useful info.

gotten this to work? Pointers appreciated.

Please verify its path and try again
Those instructions are down at the bottom of the page and in a section titled
Old EL5 Package instructions
"As of December 18, 2009 there are current 389 packages in EPEL. Before 389 was
available via EPEL, we provided a Fedora Core 6 yum repo for hosting the EL5 packages. The
instructions below are for that repo."
That's apparently too confusing, so I'll just remove that section entirely.
